And yet today the rumor is kyrie is going to give the lakers an interview.The hubris of male egos these days is the takeaway for me. He's gotten extra far with his smile and charisma his entire life (not that he wasn't an all-timer as a player and isn't a good business man outside of bball) and therefore believes cowardly quitting a job that he didn't try hard enough at is ok to do on TV and is also partially the media's fault.
And of course coming away from this thinking that the Lakers are anything but a dumpster fire is laughable. Sure they are better off without Magic, but their roster, decisions and reputation right now is in the trash. IF they hire someone very good they could buy the perception of turning it around - but free agents will certainly be extra wary about being duped into entering both Lakers and LeBron vortexs (vortexi?) that have ended very badly for very many for years in a row.
Well your Kyrie rumor, though I don't believe it given the timing of precipice of the playoffs would be further evidence on my theme of giant male egos.And yet today the rumor is kyrie is going to give the lakers an interview.
Ball and lebron is a strong core. If they get kyrie they’ll have ball as another interesting trade chip to land another impact player. Bradley Beal could be interesting.
You are spot on, on Lonzo. For the Lakers you are what your record is: last 6 years 27-55, 21-61, 17-65, 26-56, 35-47, 37-45.Lonzo Ball is not a big trade chip. He's just another guy at this point. Ingram is an interesting player, he might get the Lakers something. I don't see the Lakers as a dumpster fire though. The roster is clear of bad contracts and they have a ton of flexibility. They could turn it around quickly with the right GM and a little luck. They just need 1 high end player to want to team up with Lebron. I don't know if that will happen but I certainly wouldn't rule it out,
